As per the statement issued by JKCC, the members expressed deep concern over the strike call observed by the people of these three districts on the call given by J&K High Court Bar association and some other civil society formations of Jammu in a bid to support the culprits named in the charge sheet filed by the crime branch.

Jammu and Kashmir Coordination Committee (JKCC), an amalgam of the trade, industry , tourism, travel, horticulture chambers and civil society formations,  has urged the state government to ensure transfer of "Kathua rape and murder case"  to some court in any district of the state other than the three districts of Jammu,  Kathua and Samba. 

As per the statement issued by JKCC, the members expressed deep concern over the strike call observed by the people of these three districts on the call given by J&K High Court Bar association and some other civil society formations of Jammu in a bid to support the culprits named in the charge sheet filed by the crime branch. 


"Blocking the Crime Branch team from submitting the charge sheet in Kathua court and subsequent strike call given by High Court Bar Association Jammu in a bid to protect the rapists and murderers has brought in collective shame to the overwhelming humane citizens  of Jammu",  said members of JKCC. 

"The inflammatory statements and speeches made by JKHCBAJ president and some others clearly tantamount  to inciting of violence for which they need to be booked under PSA and put behind the bars",  said the JKCC members. 

While expressing satisfaction over the sacking of two ministers for their role and attempted support to save the culprits,  JKCC has also demanded a probe in their role in alleged complicity in the land mafia of Kathua and Samba.
